New lead in search for missing Michigan woman who may have been kidnapped

Danielle Stislicki has been missing since December 3

A month since she went missing, a new development in the disappearance of Danielle Stislicki may provide clues to the whereabouts of the 28-year-old MetLife employee who was last seen leaving work on December 2.

Police are searching the home of a security guard who worked in the same MetLife office building in Southfield, Michigan, until this past October and is believed to have been acquainted with Stislicki.

Authorities are reportedly running DNA tests on a mattress found in the security guard’s home. Police believe the mattress was taken from a home in Berkeley, Michigan, on December 23. first reported the story of this latest development and declined to publish the name of the security guard as he has not been named a suspect at this time.

Police believe Stislicki was abducted after leaving work on December 2. She didn’t show up to a planned dinner date with her best friend, and calls from concerned family and friends went straight to her voicemail. Her friends and family told it was “out of character” for Danielle to miss appointments and not respond to calls.

“Something extreme has happened,” Danielle’s mother Ann Stislicki said about the missed dinner date. “She did not have a boyfriend, there was no reason for Danielle not to be there,” said her mother, who also worked at MetLife but was not in the office when her daughter disappeared.

Stislicki’s cell phone is still missing, though police found her vehicle parked in her Farmington, Michigan, driveway on December 3. They do not believe she drove it there herself. Her keys were missing from the car.

A reward of $129,000 is being offered for anyone with information that leads to the young woman’s return.
